    The Retro Museum is entirely dedicated to the reproduction of scenes from everyday life in the past. This nostalgic world can be accessed via the entrance to the La Crau Ecomuseum. André Avis is an enthusiastic collector. In 1987, in partnership with the Municipality, he decided to open a museum on the theme of old professions and tools. The museum has changed name since then, but its vocation remains the same, namely to preserve and pass on the memory of the Ancients to adults and primarily to children.

    It took several years, an incalculable number of hours' work, a great deal of patience, meticulousness, precision and above all an unconditional love of Provence to create this magnificent Provençal nativity scene. It is more than a nativity scene, it is a summary of the heritage of the most aromatic region in France, the region of Etienne Gaillardet, the creator of this magical place located in La Crau de Châteaurenard (13).

    Saint Pierre-ès-Liens, the commune's parish church, is built in the Classical style. Construction began in 1695, as the former Saint Pierre-ès-Liens parish church had become too small to accommodate the villagers due to the growth of the village (growth due in part to the operation of the quarries from the 15th century).

    The Assomption Church dates back to 1325. The forecourt of the parish church is accessed via the 19th century monumental horseshoe staircase. On the forecourt near the Town Hall, at the bottom of the church, a decorated cast iron cross sits on top of a stone altar where the priest of the commune would officiate under certain circumstances. This cross replaced an old wooden cross which supported a very large Christ. The first church was within the village of La Savoie, at the foot of the château ruins.

    Saint Michel Chapel, or the Chapel of the White Penitents, is the oldest monument in Cabannes. Constructed in the 12th century, it was abandoned in the 15th and then occupied by the Brotherhood of White Penitents in 1633; the Brotherhood restored it and remained there until 1920. Half a century later, in 1974, Jean Girard, grandson of the Brotherhood's last Prior, launched an appeal to all the people of Cabannes; this appeal was heard and the chapel was perfectly restored both inside and out.

    Tarascon enjoyed many privileges under the reign of the Counts of Provence. In August 1272, an Act of Charles I of Anjou, the uncle of King René, authorised the founding of a Maison de la Monnaie (Mint), thus allowing Tarascon to mint money in the same way as Tours. Coins were minted here from 1387 to 1520. During this time, a real coin and a fake coin were nailed to the door, in order to inform the population and discourage forgers. The mint ceased operation between 1518 and 1526 and between 1543 and 1591, as its activity was contested by the Provence Parliament.
